Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Arsenal, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Chelsea will be without three players for the match.

According to Lampard, Chelsea will be without Ben Chilwell and Reece James for the game against Arsenal on Boxing Day and also against Aston Villa on 28th December.

“They’re both doubtful,” Lampard said. “We’re not sure whether they will be fit for either game.”

Lampard also revealed Hakim Ziyech will miss the game against Arsenal.

“No, he won’t be fit for Arsenal,” Lampard added.

“He had a knee injury at the start of the season and he now has a muscle injury.

“You have to wait to recover. It’s not a long-term concern and we hope to have him back in the next week or so.”
